Weather Restrictions: Epoxy -- "Wet-Bond"

Connect to your favourite weather forecaster and look for the following conditions:


Category: Adhesives     Product: Epoxy - Wet-Bond

Temperature Limitations: Above +10 C (+50 F) -- although a special product called "Cold-Bond" will work at -6 C (+21 F)

Rain Limitations: Can be applied in rain, even underwater

Wind Limitations:  n/a

Humidity Limitations: n/a

Comments: Wet-Bond is an easily available flexible two part epoxy that adheres to most materials, including PVC, wood and metal. It can be applied underwater or during a rain-storm.  As a repair adhesive it is in a category on its own.  Found in swimming pool supply stores, Home Hardware or on the web.

Weather limitations on most renovation products can be located on the WEATHER tab above.



Wet-Bond is a specific brand of epoxy that deserves an entry all to itself, as it really does give great bonding to just about any non-porous material, including the almost impossible to glue PVC plastic.

In addition it works under water -- and hence in drenching rain. Got a rain gutter that you just have to plug up -- use Wet-Bond. Got a swimming pool piece that is cracking and will require partial or total draining of the pool to fix -- put on your snorkel and use Wet-Bond. Enough -- check out WATERPROOF EPOXY.
